Happy 2013! Here are two resolutions that I recommend: (1) Become more acquainted with the local music scene. (2) Be nice to other people. And wouldn’t you know, this show is a great way to do both! This stellar lineup of Northwest talent—Don’t Talk to the Cops, Stephanie, Dude York, and Wimps—will definitely make you shake it from your head to your hips, and the proceeds benefit Food Lifeline, which is “dedicated to ending hunger in Western Washington.” What a nice way to start the New Year.
